Overview

Last year, 1.3 million personal bankruptcies were filed in the United States. This newly-revised title clearly explains the major changes that have recently been made to the nation's bankruptcy laws.
Specific changes will prevent people from eliminating credit card debt and other unsecured looans by filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7, and forcing them to file under Chaapter 13, a court-supervised repayment plan. In addition, while not totally eliminating the homestead exemption, there will be a cap on the amount that can be sheltered in a bankruptcy filing.
A new glossary, appendix with valuable web site information, state-by-state exemptions and easy-to-use, blank tear-out forms make this book the most current product available.
